So much to tell you!

Oh, my word. Have I been a busy bee lately  - So busy that I haven't had the time to blog at all (I know, I know that's nothing new...).

Firstly, I start my new job on the 14th July - really excited, but sooooo nervous.  We have managed to get more decorating done in the house and now that I don't have to keep to boring neutral colours, I have been very getting very adventurous.

Then there is the new Stampin' Up! catalogue.  I have received my new catties through the post today and its has some brilliant new products.  My Club ladies are going to love getting their catalogues when I deliver their orders - brace yourselves girls...!

I have also been getting familiar with my new venture at South Hill Designs - there are some amazing promotions at the end of this post so if you want the chance to get some free products from their range of gorgeous lockets and charms, read the end of the post for more info.

Anyway, enough of my whaffle.  Here is the birthday card I made for my SU Mum Sara.

I cut out two Label Card Framelits and embossed one before flipping it upside down and adhering to the back section of the other.  Here are the items I used, if you would like to find out more, just click on the item.

Table built using Stampin' Up! Product Table Builder from The Crafty Owl.

Now, what about these offers with South Hill Designs?  Well, if fancy a girly afternoon or evening with some of your friends, book a party and if the sales from the party come to over £165 you get free products.

Normally, the free product amount works out at 10%, but this is being doubled to 20% for parties booked and orders placed before 14th July.  You can also get items at 1/2 price depending on the total of the sales and if one of your friends books their own party.  The party I held at the beginning of June had over £80 in free products and two half price items!!!

Sales                    Hostess  Rewards     Double Rewards            ½ Price Item

£160 - £239                   10%                              20%                                     1st Item
£240 - £399                   15%                              30%                                     2nd Item

£800                               25%                              50%                                     4th

For each
Social Event booked at your party, you may choose any item from the collection at 50% off the retail price.  Your choice will ship once the booking occurs.

If that wasn't enough excitement, look at this baby.

If you join SHD from now until next Tuesday the Small Social starter kit is the normal price, £191 + £6.95 delivery for over £500 in product,


you also get the Summer Magic kit free (a screen, a coin and 10 charms)


the TOP 50 CHARMS FREE - this works out at over £800 in products plus some marketting materials to help you set up and promote your own business.

Now if you are wondering what this looks like, see this photo.

Field Flowers

Yet another stamp set I've loved the look of, bought and never used - Field Flowers.

It's a great set which lends itself to any occasion and the sentiments are lovely too.

The stamp set isn't the only item I've used for the first time to make this card, there's the silver bakers twine, Hexigan Hive and Banner Framelits.

I'm feeling a bit delicate at the minute as I had a car accident this afternoon, nothing serious thankfully. A car ran into the back of me so I'm expecting to ache in the morning!

All being well, I'm planning a card making class 'Two Step Stamping' and also a launch party for the South Hill Designs Lockets. But I'm sure by then all be fine by Saturday.

Saturday 7th June
12 til 2pm Cardmaking Class
- make three cards using the two step stamping techniques for £10 (£8 to team members)

4 til 6pm South Hill Designs Launch Party
- come and have a play making your own personalised lockets using the stunning products from SHD. No hard sell, I promise. The brand is so new in the UK the official launch isn't until July.

If you a play or just want to find out more about free and half price items, come along. But if you can't make it I've got some catalogues so contact me and I'll bob one in the post to you.

If you fancy coming to the class or the Launch Party, just let me know so I can make sure I have everything (including cake!) ready.
